After the year we’ve had, it’s fair to say plenty of us are hanging out for Christmas.
With just seven weeks to go, we thought it was worth researching the postal cut-off dates to make sure everyone’s parcels arrive with plenty of time to spare.
This year we’ve set a few reminders, and it’s worth sharing these dates with your residents who might want to send parcels of their own.
Australia Post guidelines
